UK Export Finance: Pipeline Project Opportunity

17th January 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Register now to secure your place at UK Export Finance’s (UKEF) Supplier Fair for their Pipeline Project Opportunity.

The East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) is a 1,450km crude oil export pipeline that will transport Uganda’s crude oil from Kabaale – Hoima in Uganda to the Chongoleani peninsula near Tanga in Tanzania.

Front End Engineering Design has been completed and preparation for procurement and early works is currently underway. When constructed it will be the longest heated pipeline in the world

This is a unique opportunity to find out how to bid for these contracts. At the event, you will have the opportunity to meet with the key decision makers who are looking to procure content from UK suppliers.

What you can expect at the event

  • Technical and executive overview of the East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) project
  • Details of the procurement process for UK suppliers
  • One-to-one meetings with representatives from the EACOP project team

Why you should attend:

  • This is a strong opportunity to enter the supply chain of this project. A significant amount of UK supplies will be needed as a condition of the UK government’s export finance support.
  • You will be able to make or renew connections with procurement representatives from the EACOP project and Total, one of its principal sponsors, whilst also meeting with officials from the Department for International Trade, UKEF and other suppliers.
  • UKEF support will mean the overall credit risk for the project will be equivalent to supplying a UK government project. UK government officials with experience of supporting exports to Africa will be present to provide guidance on doing business there and discuss further opportunities.
